It is our pleasure to announce that the winner of 2016 CHPAMS Rising Scholar Best Paper is granted to "The effect of air pollution on mortality in China: Evidence from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games", authored by Drs. Guojun He, Maoyong Fan, and Maigeng Zhou.

CHPAMS established the Rising Scholar Best Paper Award in November 2016 to recognize outstanding peer review publications authored by CHPAMS members who are in their early career stage.  A six-member Award Committee completed a thorough review of all eight applications and selected the winner for the first CHPAMS Best Paper Award. The winning paper, "The effect of air pollution on mortality in China: Evidence from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games", estimates the causal effect of air pollution on mortality in China in a quasi-experimental design. The paper was published on the September 2016 issue of Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, a leading journal in environmental economics. The winning paper’s lead author, Dr. Guojun He, is an economist working on environmental, health and development issues. He is an assistant professor appointed jointly at Division of Social Science, Division of Environment and Department of Economics at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).

Congratulations to Drs. Guojun He, Maoyong Fan, and Maigeng Zhou!
